Good eats in an outside venue. Good margaritas and food. Great ambience unless it is raining. Limited inside seating.

This is a really fun restaurant when the weather is warm, as most of it is outdoors. It was a little chilly tonight, and the recent rains seemed to have fried the mushroom heaters. But the extensive margarita menu will warm you up! I had a Pina Colada margarita which was absolutely delicious. I wanted to try the Mexican Lollipop... More

We visited on taco Tuesday and had a variety of fish tacos. All were excellent along with the margaritas. It was an unusually cool night. The restaurant is primarily outdoor seating but they had heaters all over keeping us all comfortable. Would definitely go back. The staff is nice but slooow. We didn't mind as we weren't in a hurry.

Enjoyed a delicious Taco Tuesday at En Fuego. Short walk from the hotel, lively atmosphere which nicely accompanied my solo dining experience. Jesus, my waiter, was outstanding! Very attentive, provided honest recommendations on taco and drink selections. Definite stop for dining in Del Mar. enjoy!!!

I was all set to give En Fuego a great review, but then their service disappeared. The food was great; their chips & salsa was very tasty; their menu had a lot of good options; but then my drink took forever to arrive. Hard to believe that you can order a second drink before your meal arrives, and not have... More

excellent food for a decent price. I stop by here every time I'm in town. From chimichangas to tacos and more, worth the stop.

Friendly and happy atmosphere. I was there on a Sat night and noticed young people around the bar where DJ starts playing at 9:30pm. From the outside you don't tell but this restaurant offers lots of seating area/rooms, including a patio. Food was excellent. I ordered chicken tostada salad and chicken, rice and beans were very tasty.

The Spanish wine was delicious and the food is fine but the portion was smaller than what we expected and compairing to other Mexican restaurants. The building is very unique and very Mexican.

I went here in December for lunch with my aunt. We got the calamari appetizer and we both got to go to salad with fish added to it. The calamari was interesting, like large pieces and a dip. The wine list was very very good. The atmosphere is super nice and I highly recommend this place.

The food is good, no doubt about it. But the service, especially if you are with kids and a foreigner, service is definitely disappointing. We had a 4 months old baby with us and the house placed us in outdoor area in a cold day and, despite of many available tables in ground floor, we had to carry the stroller... More
